TWiT: Maxwell's House

Maxwell's House was a weekly show hosted by Leo Laporte and Ray Maxwell. Episodes commonly revolved around the real world applications of complex scientific notions (colour science, science of programming, relativity). Ray attempted to elucidate relevant notions, while avoiding two common pitfalls: oversimplifying and simply stating the physical laws governing the phenomena. Ray peppers his analysis with tangents, thematic interjections over his life experiences. As of Spring 2010, Maxwell's House narrowed its focus to cover mainly aviation.

Ray was a regular guest on Leo's television program The Lab with Leo Laporte in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Ray broadcasted from his home in Vancouver. In December 2009, Maxwell's House became an official TWiT podcast. On June 24, 2010 it was announced that Maxwell's House 78 would be the final episode. Leo stated that Ray Maxwell will still be appearing frequently in other shows on the network. Maxwell's House was retired on the TWiT Network with its release of episode 78 on June 27, 2010.
